From notebook A execute this:

nb = CreateDocument[{ExpressionCell[Defer[Quit[]], "Input", 
    Evaluator -> "B"]}]; SelectionMove[nb, All, Notebook]

Thanks, this works. – Tom Wellington Oct 23 '12 at 19:22
@M.R. , is it possible to use a similar trick when running codes in 2 distinct kernels A and B, using 2 distinct Linux terminals? – fcpenha Jul 1 '13 at 17:51
